Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Good build quality
  • Aesthetic design - brushed metal at the back gives the phone a premium look and offers good grip
  • The 5-inch display feels compact and is easy for one handed operations, and for people with small hands
  • Decent display with vibrant colors, and good viewing angles
  • Funtouch OS over Android looks attractive and has some useful added functionality (though it is a little cluttered)
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Loud and clear speaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
  • Decent front (selfie) camera
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Good battery life - easily lasts a day with moderate to heavy use
  • Fast charging support
  • Looks quite classy, and despite being a large phone, has good ergonomics
  • Slim, and light
  • Bright, colourful display that has decent legibility even under direct sunlight (although resolution is on the low side)
  • Good performance in day-to-day use, and multitasking, with 4GB RAM
  • Decent 13 MP rear-facing camera - takes good photos in both well-lit and low-lit conditions - autofocus is decently quick too
  • 20 MP front camera is the defining feature here - it is good (though, not ground-breaking) with field of view large enough to fit a few friends in the frame, and capable of capturing a lot of details such as texture and contrast which is uncommon to find in this price bracket
  • Good audio quality
  • The speakers are quite loud and clear
  • Decent battery life - the 3, 000 mAh battery is generally good enough for a whole day’s worth of mixed usage
  • On the whole, the Vivo V5 is a good purchase for someone who wants to click a lot of selfies, and consume media on their phone
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Display is a little reflective, and prone to smudges
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Average rear camera - daylight images come a little washed out, while low light images have plenty of noise
  • Average call quality
  • Heats up a bit when playing heavy games
  • The body, though it looks good, does feel very plasticky and not as well built as the Lenovo Z2 Plus or even the Samsung J7
  • The custom UI on top of Android feels a little cluttered (though with a rich feature-set)
  • While the overall performance is good, it's definitely not chart leading in this price bracket - heavy games/apps like Modern Combat 5 or Asphalt 8 are not ideal for the phone - and the phone can be a bit laggy after using the camera burst mode
  • Front camera is good overall, but tends of over-expose pictures a little bit
  • The lack of a USB Type C port, and quick charging, is also a negative
